I wanted lasagna and I did a " ZAAR " search, and didn't have alot of the ingredients that those on here called for. So, I decided to make up one using what I had on hand. And if I say so myself it turned out pretty good ;). Now this is a very mild dish, so I think it would be very kid friendly. Both the stovetop and oven times have been figured into the cooking time.I know there are ALOT of steps in this but believe me, it's alot easier than it looks." ZAAR " wouldn't let me add parmesan/romano blend,but it's 1/2 cup divided. Let " rest " for 10 minutes before serving.Submitted to " ZAAR " on August 10th,2009
